Nobel Prize in physics awarded for research in quantum mechanics

The 2022 Nobel Prize in physics was awarded to a group of scientists, France’s Alain Aspect, US national John Clauser and Austria’s Anton Zeilinger, the Nobel Committee of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced on Tuesday.

The prize was awarded "for experiments with entangled photons, establishing the violation of Bell inequalities and pioneering quantum information science," the committee's statement reads.

The researchers described the effect of "entangled quantum states" where two particles that used to be part of the same system behave like a single unit even when they are far apart.
